In 1993, a large number of the most qualified Italian furnishing textiles industrialists promoted the PROPOSTE fair. What was needed was a specialised and selective fair, which, starting from the consolidated MADE IN ITALY, would highlight the quality and professionalism of MADE IN EUROPE.

SPECIALIZED because the exhibitors are exclusively direct producers of furnishing and curtain fabrics. SELECTIVE because these exhibitors share at least three characteristics: the qualification of their companies and products, their professional fairness, their commitment to research and experimentation in the field of aesthetics and in that of technologies.

Proposte is an exhibition with free admission reserved to operators belonging to the following business sectors: textile editors, upholstered furniture manufacturers, wholesalers, converters, major retail chains, contract industry professionals.

The exhibiting location is Villa Erba in Cernobbio (Como – Italy).

PROPOSTE 1993 | 44 exhibitors, 38 of which Italian and 6 from other European countries, and 2500 visitors. In 1997 PROPOSTE obtained the Italian government’s acknowledgement as international fair.

PROPOSTE 2021 | 61 exhibitors, of whom 27 are Italian and 34 from abroad.


Proposte is organized and promoted by Proposte srl, which is owned by Ascontex Promozioni and Consorzio Promozione Tendaggio.


Proposte is an ISFCERT certified trade fair.
